Passengers on flight JQ8 departing this evening from Singapore to Melbourne are the first Jetstar customers to fly on the state-of-the-art wide-body aircraft.
The new aircraft will replace the Airbus A330s that has been operating the route since 2010.
Jetstar Asia CEO, Bara Pasupathi based in Singapore was excited to welcome the spacious 787 Dreamliner to customers in Singapore
“Five years ago, Jetstar was the first low fares airline to introduce long haul flying with the Airbus A330-200 aircraft in Singapore and the two-class service was popular with both leisure and business travellers.”
“The introduction of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner will mean a more consistent customer experience for Jetstar’s long-haul customers and also offer the airline substantial fuel savings and cost benefits to help us keep fares low,” said Mr Pasupathi.
The Jetstar Boeing 787 Dreamliner is configured in two classes for 335 passengers and offers international business class and economy seats.
The service is operated by Jetstar Airways, part of the Jetstar Group.
